The buzzing is usually caused by a defect in one of the internal boards, or a defective power supply, or a defective panel.
Here's a good buzzing thread:
Thanks Randy, to be honest, I read most of your posts, and they are what confirmed that my buzzing is too loud.
I will see what the technician does this time around (one of the board will be replaced), and if the buzzing remains on the same level, I will ask Panasonic for a replacement. I see that one of the forum members posted that his gt50 made in November doesn't buzz, so I'll see if they can send me something along those lines. To be honest, I'd rather have this one fixed as it has no other issues, but I will not tolerate the buzz I can hear from 8+ feet away. It's not a $500 TV...
That being said, I'd be shocked if it's a defective panel, that's much bigger of a mess up from Panasonic to happen frequently than a circuit board of a power supply.
Still, my question remains if the buzzing of GT50s actually got fixed by technicians or not? I can see that some people have similar cases to mine, but they report no outcome as to what happened once the SS board was replaced. I believe that's the part I am getting replaced this time around.
